Youth choir hand picked to perform with Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree and United Nations Messenger of Peace, Stevie Wonder.
LOS ANGELES – Drive Hope Foundation announced today that the Drive Hope Youth Choir will perform with Stevie Wonder at Stevie Wonder’s 21st Annual House Full of Toys event on Dec 9, 2016 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Drive Hope’s mission is to fuel the passion of disadvantaged youth and empower those who possess the desire, yet lack the resources, to discover life and career opportunities in their community and throughout the world.
“The Drive Hope choir has been working hard,” states recording artist and organization founder, Malina Moye. “Watching the dedication and talent from this group is inspiring.”
The concert, produced by Wonder Productions, also stars Grammy winners John Legend, Lionel Richie and Tori Kelley to name a few. The choir will sing Stevie Wonder’s “Love’s In Need of Love Today,” and the segment will be produced by Drive Hope Executive Director, Deidre Powell.
“I can’t wait for everyone to see and hear what we’ve been working on,” adds Powell. “The kids represent all corners of LA and are excited to bring that diversity to the stage with Stevie for a great cause.”
Concertgoers are asked to bring an unwrapped toy or gift to Microsoft Theater. House Full of Toys benefits children, those with disabilities, and families in need. Aligned with this goal, Drive Hope Foundation strives to open the minds of youth with the motto “find the great in you” and online campaign with Hashtag #FindtheGr8nU.
Foundation cofounder Marc Fusco affirms, “Singing in a group in front of a huge audience builds self confidence and for these kids to do it alongside a legend like Stevie Wonder will create a moment they will always be able to look back on and cherish.”
